Considered one of China's beloved folktales, Mulan is transformed into an animated film full of action, adventure and the courage of a young girl. In a small rural town, Mulan struggles with her family's expectations for her to become a 'proper' young lady. When her father is called up to fight in the Imperial Chinese Army to help protect the kingdom from the Huns, who have breached the Great Wall, Mulan panics. She knows he won't survive as he is too frail, so she decides to pass herself off as a young man and fight in his place. When her grandmother finds out, she appeals to their ancestors to watch over her and protect her. But rather than a potent spirit, it's a tiny dragon with a big attitude, along with a cute cricket, who accompany Mulan to the training camp, where she must prove that she is as brave and battle-ready as all the other soldiers. A thrilling tale exploring topics including gender representation in an accessible, musical way.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
